SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a leader in storage, networking and connectivity semiconductor solutions, today reported financial results for the second fiscal quarter of fiscal year 2018. Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $605 million, which exceeded the midpoint of the Company's guidance provided on May 25, 2017.

GAAP net income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $135 million, or $0.26 per share. Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $153 million, or $0.30 per diluted share. Cash flow from operations for the second quarter was $101 million.

"I am pleased to report that our second quarter results demonstrated Marvell's continued transformation as a company, achieving revenue above the midpoint of our guidance, improved profitability and continued return of capital to shareholders," said Matt Murphy, Marvell's President and CEO. "I'm proud of our team -- in a competitive environment, we are delivering innovative solutions that our customers clearly value."

Third Quarter of Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook

  • Revenue is expected to be $595 million to $625 million.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be approximately 61% to 62%.
  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be $230 million to $240 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be $205 million to $210 million.
  • GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations is expected to be in the range of $0.25 to $0.31 per share.
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations is expected to be in the range of $0.30 to $0.34 per share.

Discontinued Operations

The Company's financial results for prior periods presented herein have been recast to reflect certain businesses that were classified as discontinued operations during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 and second quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Conference Call

Marvell will conduct a conference call on Thursday, August 24, 2017 at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss results for the second quarter of fiscal 2018. Interested parties may join the conference call by dialing 1-844-647-5488 or 1-615-247-0258, pass-code 57564938. The call will be webcast by Thomson Reuters and can be accessed at the Marvell Investor Relations website at http://investor.marvell.com/ with a replay available following the call until September 1, 2017.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of share-based compensation expense, amortization and write-off of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring and other related charges, litigation settlement, and certain expenses and benefits that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell's core operating performance.

In fiscal 2018, Marvell began using a non-GAAP tax rate to compute the non-GAAP tax provision. This non-GAAP tax rate is based on Marvell's estimated annual GAAP income tax forecast, adjusted to account for items excluded from GAAP income in calculating Marvell's non-GAAP income, as well as the effects of significant non-recurring and period specific tax items which vary in size and frequency. Marvell's non-GAAP tax rate is determined on an annual basis and may be adjusted during the year to take into account events that may materially affect the non-GAAP tax rate such as tax law changes; significant changes in Marvell's geographic mix of revenue and expenses; or changes to Marvell's corporate structure. For the second quarter of fiscal 2018, a non-GAAP tax rate of 4% has been applied to the non-GAAP financial results.

Non-GAAP diluted net income per share from continuing operations is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income from continuing operations by non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted). For purposes of calculating non-GAAP diluted net income per share, the GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude the potential benefits of share-based compensation expected to be incurred in future periods but not yet recognized in the financial statements. The expected compensation costs are treated as additional proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method.

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to Marvell's financial condition and results of operations. While Marvell uses non-GAAP financial measures as a tool to enhance its understanding of certain aspects of its financial performance, Marvell does not consider these measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Consistent with this approach, Marvell believes that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures to the readers of its financial statements provides such readers with useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for GAAP financial measures, allows for greater transparency in the review of its financial and operational performance.

Externally, management believes that investors may find Marvell's non-GAAP financial measures useful in their assessment of Marvell's operating performance and the valuation of Marvell. Internally, Marvell's non-GAAP financial measures are used in the following areas:

  • Management's evaluation of Marvell's operating performance;
  • Management's establishment of internal operating budgets;
  • Management's performance comparisons with internal forecasts and targeted business models; and
  • Management's determination of the achievement and measurement of certain performance-based equity awards (adjustments may vary from award to award).

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of Marvell's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Marvell's results as reported under GAAP. Marvell expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from Marvell's non-GAAP net income should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

These statements are not guarantees of results and should not be considered as an indication of future activity or future performance. Actual events or results may differ materially from those described in this press release due to a number of risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: Marvell's  ability to successfully restructure its operations within its anticipated timeframe announced in November 2016 and with the anticipated amounts of costs and savings; Marvell's dependence upon the storage, networking and connectivity markets, which are highly cyclical and intensely competitive; the outcome of pending or future litigation and legal and regulatory proceedings; Marvell's dependence on a small number of customers; severe financial hardship or bankruptcy of one or more of Marvell's major customers; Marvell's ability and the ability of its customers to successfully compete in the markets in which it serves; Marvell's reliance on independent foundries and subcontractors for the manufacture, assembly and testing of its products; Marvell's ability and its customers' ability to develop new and enhanced products and the adoption of those products in the market; decreases in gross margin and results of operations in the future due to a number of factors; Marvell's ability to estimate customer demand and future sales accurately; Marvell's ability to scale its operations in response to changes in demand for existing or new products and services; the impact of international conflict and continued economic volatility in either domestic or foreign markets; the effects of transitioning to smaller geometry process technologies; the risks associated with manufacturing and selling a majority of products and customers' products outside of the United States; risks associated with acquisition and consolidation activity in the semiconductor industry; the impact of any change in the income tax laws in jurisdictions where Marvell operates and the loss of any beneficial tax treatment that Marvell currently enjoys; the effects of any potential acquisitions or investments; Marvell's ability to protect its intellectual property; the impact and costs associated with changes in international financial and regulatory conditions; Marvell's maintenance of an effective system of internal controls; and other risks detailed in Marvell's SEC filings from time to time.
